The collector isn't a member of this group; he's a private bloke who doesn't have any internet presence at all, AFAIK.

Basically, if he doesn't want to be named, I'm not going to.

Someone has just posted a photo on the Tolkien Society f/book page showing their copy of the facsimile Hobbit with Thror's map on the rear endpaper.

I don't know which number printing this is.

does anyone here think that that is JRR's signature? Someone I know is adamant that it is; but I say not.

yes, there's no problem with this as far as I can tell - Michael did use this 'MHRT' monogram.

Oh, okay - I got it wrong.
